Then, He probably had fallen in love with a girl, a Princess, but the Princess married the King of Austria. After that, He couldn’t marry anyone else. So He stayed alone in that place which later became a castle. He missed His hometown. Every day He talked about things in Heaven. People didn’t believe that there were such things. He had to be crazy to have talked about that kind of carriage, with swans pulling, etc. He liked swans, because to Him, swans represented pureness, beauty and cleanliness inside. We also know that people revered the Fourth Level beings as swans. Paramhansa, hansa – “hansa” means swans on the Fourth Level. […]

Now, talking about the castles, the one we went to visit was from Ludwig II. How to say it in Chinese? (Ludwig II.) It was built by Ludwig II. He was very famous for having built a lot of beautiful fairyland-like castles, with interior decorations all covered with gold or something very precious, such as jewels. Very, very beautiful. We…I took them there to have a look inside. […] But when I got to those places, wow, I felt so, so uncomfortable. The moment I got out of the car… arrived at the gate, I immediately felt so… so distressed, sad, and anxious that I wanted to run away immediately. Each time, it was the same. It happened not just at one castle but at three or four, all the same. The same feeling at each place, just a little bit different. But I got through it. Ah! It was weird: the feeling of being oppressed heavily. Maybe because the King there died very tragically. When He was alive, He was very lonely, very stressed. That’s why He felt… Or when the King was there, or when He built the place, He spent tremendous effort, a lot of money and labor, which made people feel uncomfortable. Or it could be that too many people had been there, different kinds of people who disturbed the peaceful atmosphere. […]

At that time, some people also said that He was a kind of hermit king. That’s why I don’t think He was crazy. It’s just that history tells it that way. Those politicians accused Him as such in order to get rid of Him and install a monarch who would be more compliant. They plotted all of this together. It was all about politics. That King was very handsome, very smart, and beautiful. And He never treated others badly. He was very kind to His subordinates and others. According to His subordinates, as recorded in history, He was very nice.

Then, He probably had fallen in love with a girl, a Princess, but the Princess married the King of Austria. After that, He couldn’t marry anyone else. So He stayed alone in that place which later became a castle. He missed His hometown. Every day He talked about things in Heaven. People didn’t believe that there were such things. He had to be crazy to have talked about that kind of carriage, with swans pulling, etc. He liked swans, because to Him, swans represented pureness, beauty and cleanliness inside. We also know that people revered the Fourth Level beings as swans. Paramhansa, hansa – “hansa” means swans on the Fourth Level.

Those who’ve reached the Fourth Level are revered as “hansa.” Spiritual practitioners would revere them as “hansa.” If on the Fifth Level, then… of course it becomes Supreme… Supreme Master. The Fifth Level. I don’t mean you. I’m talking about that Ching Hai. Just joking. Just joking. Don’t be upset. OK. He loved swans so much. He had been practicing spiritually. He said that…

When He was about to die, He still told people around Him that He thought that we should quest for God, look for God, and not sink in the material world. He said that most humans lived without noble ideals within, nor noble wisdom. How could a man who spoke these words be insane? He was very fond of music and a lot of wonderful things. He had the wisdom to build that kind of castle, and the interior decoration was very, very beautiful. But I don’t want to live there. Once inside, everything is glittering, so bright that you cannot close your eyes. If I lived there, probably I’d quickly cover all of them with dark cloth so I could meditate well. It’s too shiny. It won’t be easy for us to find our inner (Heavenly) Light if too shiny.

That’s how it was. So, He… Probably He was in vexation due to loss of love, so He kept building material things like houses, etc., hoping maybe one day She’d come back and live with Him. He thought she was the Queen, very beautiful, and so was worth living in that kind of house. He kept on talking to Her like that. But the Queen was also a responsible woman. She had married already, so be it. She had her own nation and could not come back again just like that. They had known each other since childhood, and ever since then, He didn’t want to… He could not have any relationship with or have desire for other girls. He was engaged once, but He kept putting it off, not wanting to get married. “Tomorrow, the day after, or next year,” etc. Eventually, he couldn’t bear the constant pestering, saying, “I don’t want it anymore. Cancel.” Cancelled. That was it.

So historical records don’t always show the true facts. Therefore, when we read history or stories, or so-called scriptures, we have to judge clearly for ourselves. Or else we might mislead ourselves and also others. Because if we think that we’ve understood it correctly, then we’ll tell others and make things worse. If we don’t understand, it’s best that we just keep silent, and after we are enlightened, and really understand, we can explain it to others or give talks. OK. Talking about it, there’re too many good or bad people.

It’s hot. Can you meditate? (Still fine.) Fine? OK. Then, let’s meditate for a while. Will the bamboo grove be better? Anyone asking for initiation today? Yes? Is Tong so and so here? Is there anyone asking for initiation? (Yes!) (Yes.) You say “yes,” but I’m not sure if anyone knows about it. Is there anyone doing the screening? Is there any preparation today? Whichever Tong, stand up for me to see. No one? Is Tong here? (Tong is at the main gate.) What for she’s there? (We have to ask the people there.) I don’t have any phone. Is there any wireless phone here? Check if there’s one. Go and count right now, otherwise it’d be too late. (How many people asking for initiation?) How many? (They’re still counting.) Still counting? (I’ll go and ask Tong again.) Tell them to do the screening quickly. Then bring them to the back hill. OK? No need to ask me again. Ask only if necessary. (OK.) Or it’d be too late for them to go home. Each time it’s like that, on Sundays. I know nothing at first, and then you tell me at 4 PM, “Master, we’d like to hold an initiation.” Then I’ll say, “Alright, then we won’t go home until tomorrow.” There’s only one “heart,” and it takes a long time to initiate it.

Because you’re strange. You can learn anything, but you’re very slow in learning the initiation instructions. Keep on repeating and repeating. Only Five (Holy) Names, and you cannot recite them. Funny. How come your karma is so “light?” So “little?” That’s why it takes so much time. Keep repeating it and you still can’t understand. Asking again. Waiting. That’s why it’s so slow. In the old times, just one sentence could enlighten people. No need for the troublesome initiation. Those who want to get initiation, go to the gate and report to the “gate,” meaning submit your “name.” (Report to the “gate.”) It’s also good to watch the gate over there. Go to “report your name to the gate.” I’m getting old. Don’t laugh. (“Reporting to the gate” is also correct.) Huh? (Report to the gate.) “Reporting to the door” is also correct; the door leading to the Quan Yin Method.” Entering the “door,” huh? (Enter the door.) It’s also correct. In fact, all languages are impermanent in the world. OK. Is everyone satisfied? It’s too hot. Would you like to go to the bamboo grove for meditation? (OK.) Just go. Enough people. Enough? Enough. Besides, it’s easier for the guards, and those friends and guests from outside can also walk around. They might think that there are secrets here. Let them come see the parasols. No one dares to come in if you’re sitting here, for fear of disturbing your samadhi. OK. Go to the bamboo grove. Go, go, go. Quick.

I’m not going to walk around the venue. Anyone who wants to see me can go to the… To where? We don’t have any place. Really. I’m too shy to go around the venue. OK. You… What? Enough. Are you inviting me again? Embarrassing. Got it. No. The high heels make it difficult for me to walk around. Don’t have to make any elevating stuff. Get some boys to lift me up is good enough. Yes. (Use a sedan chair.) Is there any sedan chair? The sedan chair was disassembled yesterday, right? Did you send it to a charity sale? (No.) (It’s still there.) It moves faster for me to sit on a sedan chair. If I walk in a zigzag way, people might misunderstand. Or I can walk by myself. Better walk. Just walk. (Is it OK for Your feet? The road is rough.) Is the road rough? (Better to carry You on the sedan chair.) It’s so hot today. Walking might make my make-up… (Come off.) If it comes off, I’ll look awful. Then people might come and ask me, “Where is the beautiful Ching Hai?” It’s often like that. Because they see that I’m beautiful in pictures or video tapes. They often come to tap my shoulder and ask, “Where is the gorgeous beauty, Ching Hai?” I’m too embarrassed to answer. It’s all because of you, making me look so beautiful in pictures that people cannot recognize me, the real person. (The real person is nice as well.) Is the real person also nice? (Even more beautiful.) (The real person is even more beautiful.) Real person is more beautiful? (Yes.) Strange. Why do you say things so correctly? I also think so.

The eyes often cause troubles. OK now. That’s it. It’s so tiring. I’m tired. (Tiring.) Tiresome. Yeah, thank you. Is that so? There’s no sedan? If no sedan, I’ll go home. (Yes, there is. They are bringing it.) I’m going home. (They are bringing it.) (They’ve gone to fetch the sedan.) Is the sedan chair here? If not, we walk first a little bit. From this side. (Here comes the sedan.) (The sedan is here.) Here? OK. Don’t run. You’ll sweat and look awful. Glory, glory, hallelujah! Glory, glory, hallelujah! Glory, glory, hallelujah! In the name of the Lord. Oh! Yes, the road is bumpy. We’ll make a smooth road, and that’ll be fine. I’ve thought about it. Let’s make a few smooth paths. Later, I’ll walk a short distance to get there. OK. (OK. Lift up.) (Ok. Lift. Lift up the sedan chair.) I don’t feel embarrassed today when you lift me up. That’s right. Done. The parasol. Look at the magic power. One, two, three. Yesterday I was not so beautiful as today. You couldn’t see me in the evening. (Hallo, Master.) Come back next week, and I’ll wear it to show you. (OK.) Yesterday, the kids didn’t see it. Kids love to see colorful things. Were you comfortable last night? (Comfortable.) Did you enjoy the Moon? (Yes.) They couldn’t see over there. (Couldn’t see from this side.) You can. (Hallo, Master.) Thank you. That I know. (Hallo, Master.) She said Master is so beautiful. I said I knew it. I am humble and candid. (Hallo, Master.)
